back al-qaeda and forced it out of afghanistan to the no man's land on the border with pakistan. if you are talking about nation building in afghanistan and creating some kind of stable legitimate law abiding democracy there we haven't succeeded to that degree. that is one of the reasons i think that the president if not rushing for the exits today was talking about a pretty fast walk to the exits because he realizes i think that the bigger goals he may have had for afghanistan at the beginning are impossible and that the only goal we can count on at this point is making sure that our enemies don't get a foot hold there again. >> shepard: to transfer security to a capable afghan security force. that is the goal. but we have a number of guests who come from from time to time including robert young peloton who has been over there recently and says it is just not working and i can't find the expert who can figure out long-term how it might work unless we just stick around there and help police them which of course is an option. >> chris: i'm not sure in the end and one of the things that t

is happening everywhere. it's happening in mali. happening in algeria. obviously in pakistan an afghanistan. so mali, yemen and elsewhere. this is what the bush administration had talked about and what it created infrastructure to deal with. i think what we have got to understand, in the case of algeria, we ask ourselves why did the algerians attack right away? they went through a war for decade in the '90s with radical islamists who want to take over algeria, bloody a centerrable war. tens of thousands of ted. they weren't about to stand around and create a sound stage for terrorists had they just surrounded it and negotiated. i think they knew very well it would cost a lot of casualties but they were not prepared to do as we do in the west, as we did with the iranian hostage crisis, wait for a year-and-a-half. they struck and i think the news is going to be rather mixed when we hear about the final results. >> bret: at the same time, tucker, you have the f.b.i. director in libya today. apparently asking questions to officials there about the benghazi investigation. >> right. >> bret: which we
